Did search for curb wts.I know it isn't accurate,but it gives me a feel for it.

Malibu: 3254

Cutlass: 3263

Regal: 3600
they are all the same car... the only one thats a tad heavier is the g/p as it has extra bracing..
my monte SS on the NHRA scales was 3350 with a 3/4 full tank
and it's loaded..
I highly doubt a regal has an extra 250lb of sound deadner..
and that half vynil roof isn't that much lb's

finding a 78-82 malbu good luck
finding a 78-88 cutlass much easier..
same with the regal
the g/p and g.n. have more body mounts.. most have them there but no rubber mount in place..
unless you are stuck on the look of the malbu.. no need to pay the extra the chevy will comand because it's a 2door malbu
